What's up with my phone?

Using my iPhone 5S on Ting, I seem to have some data usage every day. This occurs even on days when my phone never leaves the house, where we have good wifi coverage. (The "wifi assist" that snuck in with the new ios was disabled long ago.) It's never very much data - usually around .02 megabytes - so it isn't impacting my bill, but the fact that it occurs at all is puzzling and I'd love to understand why. Can anyone help?

Using US-based iPhone during trip to Korea for web, Skype, etc?

My husband and I are visiting Korea soon. Is the famous WiFi in Korea ubiquitous enough to use his iPhone 4 for web browsing and Skype? We're also renting an SKTelecom cellphone, but we'd like to use the iPhone for data-related tasks and travel apps. Is it just a matter of his iPhone jumping on any Wifi network (without incurring any roaming charges)? We're coming from the US (AT&T), and staying in Jeju and Seoul. [more inside]
